King Ranch seats

Im not trying to offend anybody or anything i know its to each his own but i just need to know im not crazy being the only one that thinks the king ranch seats are not that good looking and frankly a huge waste of money? Granted yes if someone gave them to me for free i would put them in but i would never pay 2,000-3,000 for a set of ugly seats? Again i understand it comes to taste but i cant be the only one?

Guys?

why if u think their not that good looking would you put them in your truck ?


I like the 2013 with black insert choice is the best ,,

unfortunately the older KR just comes with it no choice and they can be a PITA to maintain

Honestly? The only reason would to be able to say i have them, other than that i would just sell them.

I havent seen the black ones your talking about yet but if they somehow tinted them a little closer to a grey it would look better but of course it defeats the purpose of the saddle look.

And like you said the maintenance on them is hard if you want them to last any extended period.

Im probably bias but i dont know why they make any vehicle in any color than black and a few other primary colors because id say 85% of people want black. its just a badarse color to have, yes its hard to maintain but damn it looks good. I mean look at all the black out interiors on this site alone.

So i guess i dont see why people would want cowboy brown in their truck by choice, but AGAIN its my opinion and i know its not everyones. not trying to upset everyone just randomly ranting

I like mine it gives it character a lot of character, and I feel like they are more comfortable than any other seat I have ever owned. I understand were your coming from everyone deserves an opinion and has there own taste. but after having KR I will always try and get them with every truck i own.

LOL your not insane you just dont like them understandable, I dont like pink or Lime green cars and some people love them (i dont know why). and I looked at a harley before my KR and i do love the black too it would be awesome if they could do other colors with the saddle leather i would jump on black seats but i love the saddle leather.

I have never sat on the KR seats before so i cant say anything about that but they would have to be some damn lazyboys for me to like them haha

Yea the whole temp thing is the only downside that keeps me from leather. Though i wear jeans 99% of the time so its not that bad
